Aha! Roadmaps | Integrate with Redmine

This integration allows you to push your features, activities and requirements in Aha! into Redmine as issues. Redmine is a project management web application that is open source and released under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2 (GPL).

Because this is a one-way integration, you can send your records with full strategic context from Aha! Roadmaps to your development team in Redmine, but they will not be able to send status updates back. You can also create multiple integrations per workspace to accommodate how the engineering team is split up.

Note: Make sure you give each integration a unique name to keep the teams straight.

Features of the integration

  • One Aha! Roadmaps workspace is associated with one or more Redmine projects.

  • Individual features can be sent to Redmine using the Integrations dropdown on the features details or drawer view and selecting Send to Redmine.

  • When a feature is copied to Redmine, one issue will be created for the feature. If the feature has requirements, then each requirement will also be sent as an issue.

  • Only the description of a feature or requirement is sent. No to-dos or comments are included.

  • Attachments of a feature or requirement are also sent.

  • Aha! Roadmaps releases will be created as versions in Redmine.

  • After a feature is first sent to Redmine, changes to the name, description, and requirements can also be sent to Redmine using the Update Redmine option from the More options dropdown. This option is located next to the link to the Redmine record within the Aha! Roadmaps feature. New requirements will also be created in Redmine. However, issues that were created for an existing requirement are not deleted from Redmine if the requirement is deleted from Aha! Roadmaps If an attachment is deleted on the Aha! Roadmaps side, the corresponding attachment in Redmine is not deleted.
